this is what i got from wikki:
Quote:
The CJ-3B replaced the CJ-3A in 1953, the same year Willys was sold to Kaiser. It introduced a higher grille and hood to clear the new Willys Hurricane engine. The CJ-3B was produced until 1968 with a total of 155,494 produced, although the design was licensed to a number of international manufacturers, including Mitsubishi of Japan and Mahindra of India. Mitsubishi ceased production of vehicles derived from the CJ-3B design in 1998, but Mahindra continues to produce Jeeps today.

i am not sure whether they made into india by '72. (as we always got 'hand me down' after you used it)

kk2kr, Headers had a 1970 CJ3B.
Madbullram has a '69 CJ3B.
So, they definitely made it here back then.

i was refering to CJ-2, which according to wikki, they were produced till '68. I see there are quite a good number of possibilities that they were available till or even after '72 in india.

i am sure the gurus here can comment by looking at the pic, whether it is CJ-2 of '72. (or is it required to be in original condition to identify!)
